Finally SocialCare project will be able to move forward thanks to the national funding call for AAL projects.
The aim of the SocialCare project is to support and promote the social innovation process where citizens and older people are taking control of their own wellbeing supporting each other. In order to reach this goal, it will develop a new approach to care for older people which is user centred and at local level, making use of local resources, bringing as a result, a set of guidelines, best practices and technological tools for a sustainable social care network by empowered citizens in local communities that supports older people.
The SOCIALCARE project is focused on the social innovation that is needed to obtain a more sustainable care system, where stakeholders collaborate and where older people are the director of their own care needs. Therefore, it is necessary to provide all the information needed for the correct interpretation of the elder’s health condition.
Among the different modules that exist in the project, ISOIN will develop the user data monitoring. This module is based on an IoT infrastructure with a devices and services Plug in System, which main functions are to track the main care parameters and to manage the different devices and care services suppliers.
